Medical Image Processing
The digital processing of medical images poses an ongoing challange for computer science. The cause for this are the high technical and mathematical demands that arise from the required accuracy and reliability in medical systems. More and more complex problems and increased amount of available data motivate the investigation in the field of knowledge-based image analysis where semantic models for object recognition are developed.
Our focus of activities is the following:
- Feature extraction
- Modeling of knowledge databases / semantic networks
- Development of classifiers
- Setup of test databases
- Validation of results
The University of Koblenz and Landau regularly offers a course on medical image processing given by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Dietrich Paulus.
